IS YOUR SUMMER VACATION HOME SECURE?

SECURITY PITFALLS 

Many vacation homes reside alongside other vacation homes, making the overall neighborhood an attractive target for thieves and home squatters. By targeting vacation homes, both of these groups know their unlawful actions are likely to go undetected for months. If a break-in should occur, the thieves will have long since gone on to other neighborhoods, leaving the homeowners to spend their time replacing essential household components, as well mourning the loss of irreplaceable sentimental items. 

Other problems that could arise over a long span of time are issues resulting from storm damage or property damage from wildlife. A shattered window or skylight as a result of a broken tree limb could cause major damage to both a home's exterior and interior. Even something as seemingly benign as a squirrel can find its way into a home and cause major damage in their desperate attempt to find their way out of the home.

PLANNING FOR SECURITY ISSUES

Here at Echo Workshop, we take pride in working with our clients to develop a comprehensive security package to protect their valuable vacation homes. We know that peace of mind for homeowners and protection of personal property are the utmost priorities for any security system. Our security packages are designed to encompass a home's exterior as well as the interior. They include critical features such as strategically-placed security cameras, a comprehensive alarm system, and other thoughtful features such as lighting and window shades that can be programmed to make it appear as if residents are home. 

START AT THE BEGINNING - THE ENTRYWAY

One of the foundational components found within our comprehensive security package is the DoorBird entry system. The DoorBird is a video door intercom and video doorbell system. Its usefulness quickly becomes evident whether homeowners are away, or simply in their backyard enjoying relaxation time with family and friends. The DoorBird works with both the Android and iOS operating systems, allowing homeowners to answer the doorbell of their vacation home whether they are halfway across the globe, or spending some downtime in the backyard pool. 

The DoorBird is thoughtfully designed and houses both security components and features of convenience as well. Package delivery becomes a breeze by simply using the DoorBird app to open up the garage door, then remotely communicating to the parcel deliverer to leave the packages inside the garage. It's also convenient to know exactly who rang the doorbell before you open the door. Simply view the person(s) by way of the DoorBird app which monitors the intercom's HD wide-eye hemispheric camera lens.       

DISCRETE AND EFFECTIVE

We understand our clients want their summer homes to be safe and secure, yet they also want their vacation homes to be a primary hub for enjoyment and leisure time. We take pride in seeking out the latest in discrete, thoughtfully designed security components and can work with both builders and homeowners to create a security system that effectively works in the background for each specific home design. From the initial consultation to maintenance and support, we are ready to be your vacation home's security expert. Contact Echo Workshop today!
